I just returned home from the Freedom of the Seas with Royal Caribbean. We docked in Falmouth. Since it's still a new port, there was a large crowd of locals handing out free items and overall, they were very welcoming. It is certainly still under major construction, but it looks like it will be a nice area once it is complete. Who knows when it will be though.
We of course did an excursion, but it was in Ocho Rios so the drive was quite long, about an hour each way. It seems most of the excursions through the ship were actually in Ocho Rios or the surrounding area, so expect a long day. And heed everyone's advice about the locals. But we had some great tour guides and enjoyed our visit to Jamaica. We climbed Dunn's River Falls and had a great time.
